Daily Wear: Vintage Girl in a Vintage Store

I worked a full day at the vintage shop last sunday (i usually work bits here and there during the week..sometimes a weekend) and I took the opportunity of a rare quiet spell to take some pictures of my outfit. When i go in for a couple of hours during the week, i tend to justthrow any old thing on, well still cute I hope but nothing special. But the weekends are the busiest time and when I'm there for a whole day, I try to make it special by dressing up. I usually wear something vintage I got from the shop but this time I wore an unusual dress that sort of felt at home there.

It's a party dress that I have no party for, alas. I don't know if you can see it, but the print of the dress is....dresses! It's so meta, I know. haha

It has cute little panel pleats that flair out when I dance and twirl. I love the little pink tulle at the bottom. The straps are pink too. I kept it dressy with black fishnets and my favorite ivory heels.

My hair was still soaking wet when I had to leave the house so I just put it up in a bun and tied a pink ribbon around it. It was a very good day and I like to think I had some influence over it by dressing the part. It really improves my mood and gives me confidence when I think I'm well dressed. Even if I'm dressed a bit unusual. Especially if I'm dressed a bit unusual. ha!
